Hi All,

I just need to validate if I can use the following links regarding Hyper-V certificates:

scenario:

Our Hyper-V server certificate will be expiring soon as seen on the event logs.

"the certificate used for server authentication will expire within 30 days. Remote Access to virtual Machines will not be possible after the certificate expires. Please renew or create the certificate"

We are running a Windows Server 2008 R2 and is a member of a domain.

Can I use the following procedures /patches as stated on the link below?

Thanks ahead

I don't see why not. I've been running Hyper-V for more than a year and have not seen the problem you describe.

The certificate is supposed to auto-renew so you should never see this error. The link that you reference contains a hot fix to resolve this.
